    Tritium Ts on dial but can't see any lume on hands or markers
    167.005 caseback is for 551movement - non-date.
    752 movement is completely wrong for these cases anyway
    crystal has that horrible cyclops

    Something's not right about the case...proportions seem off. Think whole case might be fake.:eek:

    It has a fake dial and fake case (167.005 cases are one of the dog leg versions that were faked) Case back is clearly a fake too. Someone has stripped the day wheel off and used the smaller size pinion and star wheel to get it under the bonnet of the fake dial. This goes beyond Bombay Special into the realms of creating deliberate frauds.

    What a piece of shite.

    Cheers

    The only part on this watch that was actually used on a Constellation was the engraved bridge.

    Dial and case are known fakes. The rest of the parts?

    Who knows?

    This seller has been known to sell franken junk, I've called them out many times, but I've also bought legit stuff too.

    This is Constellation is certainly NOT legit.
